Can you Send Messages over a Mac network?
Hi all - I have my house set up with an AEBS, and I was just curious - using Airport Utility I can find the MAC and IP addresses of all other computers on my network.
Can I send them messages using terminal?

Mac7:~ jkernitzki$ man write
WRITE(1) BSD General Commands Manual WRITE(1)
write -- send a message to another user
write user [ttyname]
The write utility allows you to communicate with other users, by copying
lines from your terminal to theirs.
When you run the write command, the user you are writing to gets a mes-
sage of the form:
Message from yourname@yourhost on yourtty at hh:mm ...
Any further lines you enter will be copied to the specified user's termi-
nal. If the other user wants to reply, they must run write as well.
When you are done, type an end-of-file or interrupt character. The other
user will see the message `EOF' indicating that the conversation is over.

Coding for send message
You're first going to ssh into another computer you would type in: ssh firstname.lastname@example.org then you would type in:
osascript -l AppleScript -e 'tell Application "Finder" to display dialog "Whatever you want say!" ' Just make sure the have remote login on in their system preferences: system preferences>Sharing>Check remote log in on the side all users. You also must know there password but you could just ask them to type it in.
